Author(s): Dr. Somashekar, Dr. Kirankumar H.V and Dr. Vijay Bharadwaj

Abstract: Tuberculosis spondylitis or Pott’s disease is the most common destructive form of skeletal Tuberculosis. The most commonly affected site is the thoracolumbar vertebra. Once invading the adjacent structures of the vertebrae and intervertebral discs ultimately form an abscess causing spinal cord compression, vertebral collapse, and severe kyphotic deformity. Here we operated a case of 40 years old female with pott’s spine with impending paraparesis and after the intervention patient was treated and the impending paraparesis was controlled. ”Early intervention is gold standard to prevent the dreaded complications”.
